Hillside Farm can be found a 5-minute drive from Rhossili Bay, voted the best UK beach and third best in Europe in 2014. Pygmy goats, 40 chickens, rabbits and two dogs share 175 acres of farmland with the Taylor family and their sheep , all of which lies within the Gower Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Views from the area are as stunning as you would expect of the first place in the UK to be designated an AONB. An outstanding glamping farm holiday all round!

The family has farmed in the area from as far back as 1840. Lambing takes place from March to May, and there are always lambs to help bottle-feed during spring. You’ll also encounter horses and cattle roaming free, as it’s common land where farmers retain ancient rights to graze their animals. The Feather Down tents are situated in an orchard close by the farmhouse, and benefit from views that stretch back across the Gower Peninsular, taking in scattered hamlets and rocky outcrops.

There is much for the visitor to enjoy at Hillside, from the activity at the kids’ play area to the well-stocked honesty shop,  featuring yummy Welsh cakes and Ellen’s amazing, not-to-be-missed home-cooked food. What makes a holiday here really special is the simple fact that nothing, as guests have noted, is too much trouble for the Taylors.

Beyond the farm are legendary surfing beaches, mountain bike trails over Rhossili Down, or the shipwreck of the “Helvetia” to hunt down. For eating and drinking, there are many pubs and restaurants within walking distance of Hillside. Swansea is close by as are many places of mythological and historical interest. Otherwise, simply glory in the landscape in and around Hillside Farm, including 15 miles of glorious coastline. Dogs can come and enjoy it too between July and September.

There are two generations of Taylors on the farm. You are most likely to be greeted by Ellen and Andrew but Amy, Ross and Robert will also be helping out. The family has farmed in the area since 1840, mainly sheep and arable.
